Golden Gate, two towers

Yesterday morning we wanted to shoot Golden Gate early in the morning with Guillaume Desachy from a different perspective. We did about 30-45 min hike early in the morning to get to the point where we could see the bridge from a straight angle. I actually liked this slight unparallel view more showing the towers of the bridge elegantly...This is a single photo taken with Nikon D800, 70-200mm lens at (200 mm), f/10, Iso 160, and shutter 8 seconds.I used Lightroom and Photoshop to enhance the contrast. 

thank you very much all, for your comments and faves...

 You have so many great shots if the golden gate!!! This is truly one of the best I have seen. I won't be back out there for a couple years, but would love to find this spot. I;m not much of a hiker, but this looks worth it. Where is it?

Great job!

Really excellent use of compression effect.  One of the few original compositions of the "gate" I think, I have seen.  Driven over "gate"so many times I can't even count.  Always looks different every time.  Five Stars.

Stunning photo. I love the vivid and bold colors. It must have been breathtaking to have seen it in person? ...and well worth the hike. Outstanding shot! Thanks for capturing and sharing your experience with us.

This is one of the very best views you have taken of Joseph Strauss' masterpiece.
